Over the last half hour or so, reports have started pouring in from Facebook users that the social network has suddenly “memorialized” their pages, strongly suggesting that they are dead to everyone who stops by.

Take the above profile of our own Darrell Etherington — who is very much not dead, as in I’m talking to him right now and I’m definitely not Bruce Willis.

“We hope people who love Darrell will find comfort in the things others share to remember and celebrate his life” it reads.

The issue seems to be fairly random; it’s not popping up on everyone’s profile, but it’s certainly happening on a lot of them, including Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.


Probably not the best time to get something like this wrong, Facebook.

We’ve reached out to Facebook to figure out wtf is happening.
